To My Dear Children

(i)
My teacher used to say,
Person who is problematic
Is a magnet for troubles
Like carcasses attracting flies
Infesting themselves.

Life could be hard,
If you choose the toughest way
Life could be hard,
If you choose just to stay -
Under your own lazy shell.

(ii)
My father used to say
Lived life with ease
Don’t mess other’s territories
Don’t bite the hands
Who gave you foods.

Friends come and go,
Lover may be replaced
But parents and siblings
Like cutting a flowing water
It won’t break up forever.

    Blood is always thicker than water! Our parents are the most well meaning people in the world! Our children and siblings stay with us in thick and thin, provided there is nice bonding! Enjoyed! !
